Why is it that Asus [or perhaps more appropos, the ATX standard] conveniently locates their ram slots right beside the heat sink of the CPU so that all the hot air blows against the DIMMS and comes right back to b-0tch slap the CPU with a fist ****ing of heat.
DON'T THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT WE NEED TO **** INTEL AND GET MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK THAN A CHEAP HOOKER WHO WAS A FORMER GYMNAST?!?!
My ****ing P3V4X and 650E on an IWill Slotket II gets up to 50 degrees celsius after being an for an hour or so. And it's not even being overclocked. I know, 50 degrees is A LOT, but judging from the performance lag and the fact that cpu and ram intensive tasks seem to be preferentially targeted...From the manual it doesn't seem as though I could move the single 256 mb dimm I have to the fourth row in order to give the cpu some breathing space.
Sometimes I wish us obsessive compulsive overclockers could just design whatever we wanted from the ground up.
Someone get me some ****ing medication so I don't columbine someone while waiting for my golden orb, panasonic case fans and ****ing jet engine turbine fan aimed at that little POS cpu
